SERIES: The MTGOP's Misplaced Priorities

Republican Legislators Put Political Agenda Ahead of Montana Jobs


HELENA -- The Montana Democratic Party today continued "The MTGOP's Misplaced Priorities" campaign highlighting Republican Legislators' focus on backward legislation that benefits their political agenda, ahead of legislation that promotes job creation or strengthens our economy.

Today's example is HB 595, a bill from Rep. Derek Skees (R-Kalispell), which is nothing more than a bill that restricts a woman's right to make her own personal healthcare decisions.

Montanans don't want politicians like Rep. Skees making their healthcare decisions for them. Personal healthcare matters should be kept between a woman and her doctor, her family, and her faith.

This anti-women's health bill has been introduced and killed time and time again (20152013).

Rep. Skees bill is just another unnecessary Republican attack on women's health instead of focusing on creating high-wage jobs and growing Montana's economy. 

Is this what Montanans voted for?
